Leftovers are an inevitable part of Thanksgiving, but that doesn't mean you have to eat cold turkey & mashed potatoes for the rest of the weekend. Instead, turn your leftovers into soup, pot pie, milkshakes, sandwiches and more. Here are some of our favorite recipes from the #feedfeed community to get you started!

I love the idea of this hearty turkey soup for a post-Thanksgiving meal that will easily feed all of your guests. Quinoa adds a chili-like texture, and fried tortilla chips add the perfect crunch.
Get some extra mileage out of your stuffing by adding it to roasted acorn squash halves for an easy, nourishing meal. Don't have a stuffing recipe yet? Try our feedfeed original Wild Mushroom and Leek Stuffing, pictured here (can be made vegan & gluten free).

That's right, this milkshake actually contains an entire piece of leftover pumpkin pie! We can't think of a more delicious way to consume pie leftovers. (You can also try this same concept with apple or pecan pie!)

And, of course, you can always transform your leftovers into a towering sandwich; no recipe needed. Simply stack leftover cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, turkey, stuffing & gravy between two toasted buns or bread slices and enjoy.
